    Description

    Fr. 1225c $10,000 1900 Gold Certificate PCGS Apparent Very Fine 25.
    A scarcer Friedberg number for this unredeemable design. The usual hole punch cancels are present and the Apparent grade is for edge and internal tears, stains, and small rust stains. The staining is from moisture which places this note at the five alarm Washington, DC Old Post Office fire of December 13, 1935. Firefighters tossed many of these notes along with other combustible material from the windows of a large filing room on the sixth floor, while the lucky onlookers below were able to pick the notes up and spirit them away. Seventy-nine years later this landmark building is in the news once again as the Old Post Office Building has been bought from the government and will be turned into a luxury hotel, with a planned completion date of 2016. There is no word yet whether $10,000 Gold Certificates will be available for sale in each room's mini-bar.
